Seahawks Sign G Laken Tomlinson

The Seahawks added a veteran guard with significant starting experience, signing former Pro-Bowler Laken Tomlinson on Monday.


Talking about his team's interior offensive line last month at the NFL Annual Meeting, Seahawks general manager and president of football operations John Schneider acknowledged, "We have a lot to figure out there."

And on Monday the Seahawks took a step towards addressing that position group, signing veteran guard Laken Tomlinson, a nine-year veteran who has started 138 games over his career.

A first-round pick of the Lions in 2015, Tomlinson spent his first two seasons with the Lions before being traded to the 49ers in 2017. He started 80 games over five seasons with the 49ers, earning Pro-Bowl honors in 2021, then signed with the Jets in 2022, starting all 17 games each of the past two seasons.

While the Seahawks could very well continue to add to their interior line in the draft later this month, Tomlinson gives the Seahawks a strong option at left guard after last year's starter, Damien Lewis, left in free agency, signing with Carolina last month.

The Seahawks signed guard Laken Tomlinson on April 15, 2024. Tomlinson was a first round pick (28th overall) by the Detroit Lions in the 2015 NFL Draft and has played for the Lions, 49ers and Jets over the course of his nine year career.
